You are already in that headspace of wanting the best for your garage. You want to declutter it, clean every nook and cranny, do repairs and repaint the space, and organize the items that it houses including your car. 

So now that you want to organize your belongings, you are in a deep-dive search of smart storage solutions that will be best to accomplish this. You are clueless as to how you can keep it neat and tidy with all the objects you managed to amass for all these years. And it’s your first time attempting to tidy up your garage. 

First off, there are three storage solutions that you can use for your garage. The garage doesn’t have to be as aesthetically pleasing as your living room or your bedroom. It just has to be organized so the garage solutions for it are plain and simple.

1. Wall Shelves 

For items that you need to be accessible on a regular basis, it’s best to keep them on a wall shelf that you can easily reach by hand. You still want a sturdy and spacious wall shelf that can carry heavy-duty equipment in your garage. They will most probably house everyday tools or chemicals that you don’t want children or pets to reach if they ever find themselves in the garage. 

2. Overhead storage racks 

To maximize the storage space of your garage, you would want to use the ceiling space since the design is not that much of a consideration anyway. You can make use of that ceiling by installing overhead storage racks or ceiling-mounted shelves. Again, make sure these are heavy-duty to ensure your safety. They will house heavy equipment so you don’t want them to be falling onto anyone when they’re in the garage or to be falling directly to your car parked in the space. 

3. Hooks 

Hooks will help you maximize the storage capacity of your garage. It’s all about maximizing storage space when thinking of how you would lay out your garage. Hooks can be attached to wall shelves and overhead storage racks that will obviously give you more space for your athletic gear, garden tools, and the like. 

Here are some products from FlexiMounts that you can choose from:
